Well with the holiday season approaching and you have to pack in hours and hours of uncomfortable family time I figure it's the perfect time for Armageddon to be introduced to the world. All of a sudden your weird uncle's Dungeons and Dragons role playing stories sound like the next Avatar after downing a few Armageddon's! Or you could just hammer a couple of these back Man Show Ziggy Zaggy Ziggy Zaggy Oi Oi Oi style and pass out until dessert. Either way it's a win all the way around.
Nah in all seriousness the real question here is whether or not this stuff still tastes like beer. Like if you can make a 65% alcohol beer that tastes like Spotted Cow I'm all in. Actually that sounds like it would be a slippery slope that leads to a Thanksgiving day stomach pumping but that's a different story for a different day. But it has been my experience that the more alcohol content, the more the beer tastes like poison. Now in college the go to was always Icehouse or Natty Ice. We didn't have a lot of money and we needed to squeeze out every drop of hammeredness (medical term) out of our money. Simple economics really. And those beers were all well and good. But when you start upgrading to the 'high gravity' lager things can get a little dicey. For instance me and a couple of buddies were putting a few of these puppies away:
And madness ensued. Like I'm not entirely sure those are even FDA approved. Not only did it taste like a bunch of melted down dirty pennies, it turned my buddy Steve into a completely different person. To the point where we named it 'rage juice' and never sipped it again. Actually kind of reminded me of that scene in Gremlins where they get their hands on water for the first time. And this was only 8.5%, so I can only imagine where 65% would lead you. In any case I intend to find out by ordering this $52 brew on the company credit card. Hopefully they'll be cool with that. Or they'll just write it off, which I don't even know what that is. But they do, and they're the ones, writing it off. #kramer
PS: Reason #3243243 to never live in Minnesota? 3.2% alcohol beer. I remember my buddy Nick and I were calling a baseball game in Duluth one night and our game got done JUST before 10pm. We figured we had to hustle to get our hands on some beer so we ran a 4.2 40 from the park to a gas station and asked if we could still buy beer. To which we got the reply; 'sure you can still buy your 3.2's.' To which we slowly backed out of the store thinking that person had lost their mind and we went to another store and got the same response. So I walked to the cooler and a guy came up and grabbed a 40 out and I asked him, 'can I buy this still?' and he said 'sure but it's not going to get you drunk.' And then it dawned on my that '3.2's' meant alcohol content in the beer. We bought 4 40's a piece and just got full. Take a lap Minnesota. In Wisconsin I'm pretty sure we have 3.2% alcohol in our milk.
